Greetings fellow members.
We survived that wacky winter and by now Spring has finally sprung.
I wanted to thank everyone who attended the March General Membership Meeting and Metrostudy for providing some interesting information. Also, I wanted to thank everyone who showed up for the OSHA class at the SSHBA office last month. I heard it was very interesting and educational.
I also want to let
everyone know that April is full of events for everyone at the SSHBA. On April 26th is our annual
Kentucky Derby Raffle at Harrah’s Casino and Hotel in Joilet. Tickets for the raffle and event can be
purchased from any number of members that are selling them, or me. We have always had a great time at this
event, please attend. On April 30th
in Springfield, IL is the annual Home Builders of Illinois Lobby Day. This event is a chance for everyone in our
industry to have a chance to visit our elected officials in the state capital
and lobby them on several important building industry related issues. This is the best time for YOUR voice to be
heard. The meeting will be at the Sagamo
Club, in Springfield, at 10:30am. We
will, through Shannon, be taking the Amtrak from Joliet to Springfield and back
on the 30th.
If you’re looking to get more involved in the Association,
there are many committee meetings to do the nuts and bolts work of running the
association. I’ve said it before, if you
want to get something out of your membership join a committee and get involved.
Happy Easter to everyone and Let’s get building.
